Did you know that the library held 314 programs between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014? And 5883 children and adults attended these programs?

We are busy planning programming for the upcoming months, if you have ideas or events you would like to see, let us know!

Speaking of programs, Storyhour is held year-round on Tuesdays beginning at 10 a.m. During the rest of the summer Lego Time is each Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., Crafting @ the Library is on Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m. and a movie (suitable for children) is shown each Thursday at 1:30 p.m. Stop in today and check out all of your library resources.

Another interesting tidbit – we borrowed 1008 items from other libraries for Niobrara County patrons and we loaned 1392 of our items to patrons in other libraries. Interlibrary loan is a great way to get books if they aren’t in our library. Stop in and find out more information about this service.

Library patrons now have the option to access their library checkout history. Stop in and find out the details. Also, you have the option of having a checkout receipt emailed to you after you checkout a book.

A new book by Wyoming writer Steven W. Horn is “The Pumpkin Eater.” Identical epitaphs on identical tombstones a thousand miles apart lead Sam Dawson to discover a crime – perhaps the most heinous in U. S. history. More than three-quarters of a century has passed since the undetected mass murder of young women occurred in America’s attempt to genetically improve the human race, an experiment much larger and more sinister than Sam can envision.

Other new fiction books include “Sundance” by David Fuller, “Take My Breath Away” by Christie Ridgway, “Family of Lies” by Mary Monroe, “Those Who Wish Me Dead” by Michael Koryta, “The Gamble” by Kristen Ashley, “The Marriage Pact” by Linda Lael Miller, “The Skin Collector” by Jeffery Deaver, “Before We Kiss” by Susan Mallery, “China Dolls” by Lisa See, and “Reborn” by C.C. Hunter. A new title for the young adult is the “Falconer” by Elizabeth May.

“Is that Me Yelling: a Parent’s Guide to Getting Your Kids to Cooperate Without Losing Your Cool” by Rona Renner is among new non-fiction along with: “Year of No Sugar: a Memoir” by Eve O. Schaub and “Brothers Forever: the Enduring Bond Between a Marine and a Navy Seal That Transcended Their Ultimate Sacrifice” by Tom Sileo.
